MR. EDlTOtt.-Herevrith I send you an extrAct from an oration of the late lion. Edward Everett. which was delivered by him orue thirty years ago at the dedication, I believe, of an ob ervatory at Albany, N. Y. 'l'he oration, publish~d at the time in pamplllet form, is a masterpiece: it is not now in my possess\on, but I copied at the time, when a ~tudent at New Brunswick, this extract, and iu as much as the ideas are somewhat in the line of the studies of Collegians, it seems to me appropriate to transmit it to you for insertion in 'l'HE .Ax ·noR. In my opinion it contains one of the mo t exquisite descriptions of the glories of the dawn, and it cannot fail to give us elevated conceptions of the wonders and glories which are so ofteu displayed in the celestial concave l>efore the naked eye. No wonder that the Poalmist of old. when contemplating in the nightwatch the glorious scenPry of the heavens, exclaimed, 4 'The heavens declare the nlory of God; and the firmament sheweth his haudy work. ' ' II ere follows the extract. D. J::h u)EK. Much as we are indebted to our observatori~ for elevating our concepttoos of the lteaveuly bodies, they present even to the unaided sight, scenes of glory, which words are too feeble to describe. I had nccasion a few weeks since, to take the early train from Providence to Boston. and for this purpose rose at two o'clock in the morning. ! Everything arouud was wrapped in darkuess and hushed in sileuce, brokeuonly by what. eemeu , at tltat hour, the unearthly clank and rush of the train. It was a mild, sereue, mic.lsummer·s ni ght, the sky was witlH~ut a cloud- the wiuds ~vere ~\'hist. Tlle moon, then JU !ler last quarter, had JUSt :1seu; and the stars shone With a s~ctral lu tre, l>u~ httle affected by her pre euce. Jup1ter, two hourd lugh, was the herald of · d es, JUSt · · t 1te d ay: t 1te PI eta a b ove t'·ue b onzou, s 1ted their sweet iuthttmce iu the East; Lyra sparkled near the zen ith · \..lH.l romeda veil~d her uewly di covered glories from the naked eye in the ' outh; tue steady pointers, far ber.eai~t the pole, looked meekly up from the depths of the North to their ' vereign. ."'uch was th e gloriou ·spectacle, a s I entered the traiu. As we pr6ceed~d tl.Je timid approach of twriliJ.!ht became more preceptible. The ioteuse l>lue of the ky lJe~a.n to soften- tlle smaller stars, like littie chilc.Jreu, we nt Urst to r~st. Tlle sist~r beams of the Pleiades soon n.:eltecl together; but the bright constellations of the\Vest audNorth remained unchanged. 'tcadily the wondrou · traustiguration went on. Hands of angels, bidden from mortal eyes, shifted the scenery of the heavens; the glories of ni ,ht dissolved into the glories of the dawn. The blue sky now turned more softly gray; tbe great watch stars shut up their holy eyes; the East uegan to kindle. Faint streaks of purple soon blushed along the sky; the whole celestial concave was tilled with the iortowiog tides of the morning light, whic h came pouring down from above in oue great ocean of radiance: till at length, as we reached the Blue Hills, a flash of purple tire blazed out from above the horizon, and turned tRe dewy teardrops'of flower and leaf into rubies and diamonds. In a few second~ the everlasting gates of the morning were thrown open, and tbe lord of day, arrayed in glories too severe for the gaze of man, began his state.
